You might fancy yourself a connoisseur of bourbon and scotch until you witness a Master Ambassador go head-to-head against a Whiskey Professor (that's one academic title you probably could've worked towards). Admission includes four whiskies.

The Weekend Starts Here
This weekend is not for fools.
Spare yourself the crowds at the pubs and reserve a private room at Morton's, complete with a nine-foot screen and signature menu options—because you deserve a good time, regardless of where your NCAA loyalties lie.
Some might call it a gorge fest; we'd like to think it's a more civilized tasting event. Either way, sampling upwards of 300 wines and food made by 16 world-class chefs is an undertaking we'll happily endure after playing 18 holes.
Don't be alarmed, but at 8pm both bridges, Coit Tower and more landmarks will go dark for an hour to show solidarity against global warming (with 24 other cities worldwide). You can do the same at your place—with some wine, candles and your date.
Celebrate this indie mag's third issue and read about Israel's covert pork market and meat styling (yes, meat needs to look good too) as you feed on meat washed down with rum, wine or beer.
This inaugural film festival features shorts like 12 Hot Women and Zombie Vegetarians, which manage to make us feel intrigued, albeit prepared to be duped.
